The maxi cardigan, a.k.a the duster, earned a top spot in my closet three years ago.
Why do I love it? Back then, the long cardigan wasn’t a massive trend, like it is this season. Cozy, easy to outfit, and super flattering, it’s my definition of the perfect “3rd piece,” which is a fashion world term for the item you wear over your primary outfit (jacket, blazer, cardigan, etc.). And in my years working in the fashion world, this style topped the best seller charts every time.
I literally wear my maxi cardigan everywhere. Over a striped boat neck tee and black cigarette pants, with a breezy silk slipdress, or finishing my summer weekend uniform of vintage graphic tees and weathered denim shorts. Spring through Winter, my duster cardigan is my Linus Blanket….it goes everywhere with me.
